Flying 10 by Johnson and Loftus - Stop Press! THEY WON!!!

Our friends Tim and Dan have just built this lovely Flying 10 which they will be exhibiting at the Dinghy Show this weekend. Before they can enter the Concours d'Eegance the boat has to be sailed so here they are in Loch Broom with show capped peaks in the background enjoying what must be the greatest pleasure of building a boat - the first sail!

Our minor part in this beautiful boat was supplying the rigging. We used these handy swaged eyes so that 3 mm Dyneema D Pro could be lashed to the deck's U bolts. If you need any new rigging for this season why not ask us for a quote? It is still made in our workshop under Shaftesbury Avenue just like it has been for hundreds of years. STOP PRESS - JUST HEARD THAT THEY WON CONCOURS D' ELEGANCE, WELL DONE!

RYA Suzuki Dinghy Show 4th to 5th March Alexandra Palace, London.
